in the spring of 2002 with Mark Somerlott, Carlos Curet, Cal
Morrow and Keith Coughenour coming together to play the blues.
In the spring of 2010 BluePrint added
Pete Macias on keyboards to round out the band. Their music
ranges from older more traditional blues to newer contemporary
blues. Up tempo shuffles or slow blues or rock blues keep things
interesting and covers a wide range of styles and artists in the
blues genre. They are also always working on adding original
songs to their list. The line up is the basic vocals, drums,
bass and guitar attack with the added flavor of Mark's blues
harp and now the texture of Pete's keyboards. One unique aspect
of their show is Cal and Keith switching off between bass and
guitar on certain songs giving the show more variety.
Mark - Lead
vocals, harmonica and percussion.
Mark was born in Lawton Oklahoma and has lived in Texas also,
and has played in other notable bands through the years in the
Lawton area. The early 90's saw Mark playing the popular rock
band "Cornerstone." In those days Mark played drums. Other bands
he was a member of include "Jack Squat" and "John Doe." Mark
played drums in both those projects along with providing backing
vocals. BluePrint saw Mark stepping forward and becoming the
"front man." Something he has always wanted to do.
gives him that opportunity and the vehicle to showcase his
formidable harmonica talents.
percussion and duck call.
Carlos hails from New Jersey originally but has lived in Lawton
for some time now. Like Mark, Carlos has played in many projects
and is still a very sought after drummer and can fill in and fit
in with other bands at a moments notice. Some of Carlos' other
projects include "Soul Survivors", "Shoepile" , "Hi-Way 62" and
"Barking Spider. Carlos is the consummate "timekeeper" and is
the backbone that keeps our music grooving. Listen for one of
his great drum solos! Carlos also designs and produces
BluePrint'S band flyers and business cards.
Cal - guitar,
bass, lead and backing vocals.
Cal was born in San Francisco, CA but has lived in Lawton for
many years. Cal has a long musical history and has also played
in many band projects and jammed with many of our local
musicians over the years. Cal was a member of "Fragile" during
the early 1980's and later went on to play in the band "EYEZ".
After that Cal played in "Jack Squat" and "John Doe" with both
Mark and Keith. Cal's guitar playing has always been considered
accomplished and now his bass playing is getting noticed too.
Cal's attractive and witty siblings are too numerous to mention!
Keith - guitar,
bass and backing vocals.
Keith was born in San Antonio, TX and like the other members has
lived in Lawton for many years. Keith played with Cal in
"Fragile" and with Mark and Cal in the bands "Jack Squat" and
"John Doe." Like Cal, Keith switches off between guitar and
bass. Keith's playing also gets noticed. Often "fans" are heard
to say..."tell that fat guy to turn down!"
keyboards and backing vocals
Peter Macias was born and raised in Lawton, Oklahoma. He has
been playing keyboard since the age of 14. Over the years he has
played with bands from different genres including country, rock,
pop, alternative, rap, jazz and blues. Pete plays for various
churches in Lawton and in several towns throughout Oklahoma. He
has just recently joined up with BluePrint.
There are also two other "sometime members" that may out of the
BLUE show up and sit in with the band. Phillip Johnsen comes up
and blows his horn with the band and also can sometimes be
coaxed into singing a song or two.
You are also likely to see Ed Stonerock come up and sing his
version of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door."

Jake Moffat Band
Jake Moffat’s life story reaches far beyond the
shores of North America. From the descendants of the sleepy town of
Moffat in the heart of southern Scotland and shores of Ireland came
two influential men who proved that the most important things in
life aren’t “things”. These two men taught Jake, his two older
brothers and sister that ability is what you’re capable of doing,
motivation determines what you do, and your attitude determines how
well you do it. Grandpa Moffat, or Grandpa Music as he is commonly
known, was a hard-working man who always had time for two things: no
work on Sundays and the sweet sound of music. The sounds of gospel,
bluegrass and country music, synonymous with the history of
Oklahoma, frequently lit up the air ways of any radio the family
could find. Grandpa Shaklee, on the other hand, was a courageous
WWII pilot. A man of few words but always there to lift you up. “My
Grandfathers didn’t tell me how to live, they lived it and let me
watch them do it“, says Jake.
Jake’s immediate love for music became evident by the age of eight.
After a few years of piano lessons and a trip to the state capitol
for a school music performance, an undeniable talent for singing
emerged. Just a year later at a Stillwater pawn shop, he swayed his
mom into purchasing his first acoustic guitar. At Daddy O’s Music,
he found some guitar lessons, and continued teaching himself to play
after his instructor moved from Stillwater a short time after he
began playing. His biggest musical influences at the time were his
two older brothers. “I was probably the only kid in middle school
jamming to Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and all the good 80’s bands,”
By his sophomore year of high school, his days were filled with
playing sports, jammin’ with his buddies in the Feed Barn after
hours, and hanging out with friends. Upon realizing that his first
band wasn’t going to make it out of the garage after an entire year
of practicing, Jake stumbled across a few new friends and formed the
band Remede. Jake found himself playing his first gig just a year
later on his sixteenth birthday at the Copper Penny. They played the
Wormy Dog in Stillwater on his 18th birthday. During the few years,
Remede built a solid reputation, but several changes to the band’s
original lineup led to the band’s breakup and Jake’s emergence as an
acoustic artist. While spending his nights playing on the Stillwater
strip, he soon became friends with the likes of Cody Canada, Jason
Boland, Stoney LaRue, and other great Oklahoma artists. He opened
the “Boys From Oklahoma” show at Poor David’s in Dallas with Cody
Canada, Jason Boland, Stoney LaRue, Mike McClure and Bleu Edmondson
on his 21st Birthday.

“The 3rd Best Garage Band in Oklahoma”© formed in
mid-1995 with Fort Sill soldiers Specialist Four Roy “Toy-Boy”©
Carrasco (bass, vocals), Sergeant Mark “8Ball”© Baum (guitar,
vocals), Staff Sergeant George “Roadkill”© Keck (drums, vocals), and
Lawtonian Mike “Tumbleweed”© Patterson (guitar, vocals).
After waiting to see if we were going to be any good, Roy’s
girlfriend, Inez “Sassy”© Soto, joined as lead vocalist. After
completing his term of service, Roy chose to return home to Houston,
Texas. Inez went with him. This began a running joke with the
remaining band members, as no less than 10 bass players have rotated
thru the line-up over the years!
The current line-up features original member Roadkill©. Roadkill© is
a solid drummer who plays what fits the music. His role as oldest
member of the band is only overshadowed by his general lack of
usefulness. CatDog© has worked his way up from roadie to soundman to
lead singer. He reached this level of success by setting up the
microphones, then keeping one for himself. Wrecker Rob© plays bass
the way you like to hear the bass. He plays a lot of low notes at
Band mate Barney Rubble© and Roadkill© have friendship that reaches
back into the 70s...too bad neither one can remember that far back.
Newest band member E.C.© faithfully commutes from Wichita Falls,
Texas for practice and gigs. He soon hope to at least recoup his gas
money and tolls.
The band has amassed a faithful cult-following of other soldiers,
blue-collar workers, and the motorcycle riding crowd. Their cover
tunes reflect Southern Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, and Rock-n-Roll.
Their original music echoes these influences. Jelibred™ has formed,
taken hiatus, reformed, and survived to bring back 15 years of great
music and a self-depreciating sense of humor to local venues.

The "Penni Lawrence Band" has opened shows for various artists
across the United States including Tim McGraw, Lee Greenwood,
Bryan White, Rick Trevino, Gene Watson, and Charlie Robison. Penni
has been a featured performer at the world famous “Tootsie’s
Orchid Lounge” in Nashville, TN, and her band has entertained
for various clubs, concerts, corporate and private parties,
military functions, and festivals.
Penni is a 3-time state finalist in the national talent
competition, the Colgate Country Showdown and also was the 2006
winner of the West Texas Idol competition.
Penni began performing at age 3 on her father’s country music
show based in Missouri, and her roots are grounded in
traditional & classic country music. Over the years, she has
developed the versatility and sultry sound to perform any type
of musical genre. Her diversity in material performed and the
ability to pull off each style effectively is unlike other
In 2009, Penni independently released her CD, titled “It’s About
Time”, which includes 3 songs written by Penni herself. Her CD
was recorded on Music Row at Nashville’s EMI Studios, and was
produced by Nashville songwriter/publisher, Charlie Craig, who
co-wrote with Alan Jackson his #1 hit, “Wanted”.
Penni and her band are currently establishing a strong presence
in the West Texas and Southwest Oklahoma area. They are able to
cater to any type of dance crowd, and with 3 of the 5 members
singing lead vocals, the diversity of music they offer sets them
apart from other live bands.
Music has always been an inspiration to Rick Jawnsun,
especially through his younger years; he has always had an ear for
His first set of music instruments were a few five gallon buckets
set side by side along with the most durable pair of branches Rick
could find which were taken off a nearby pecan tree which he used as
drum sticks. Music was what he heard while playing those drums, and
let’s just say that’s not what his family heard.
Listening to great musicians at local gatherings in the small town
of Castroville, Texas made Rick realize he wanted more than just a
member of the crowd. He wanted to be on the stage picking his guitar
and singing good music.
Five years in the army made him realize that music was the medicine
to feed his soul. In August of 2007, Rick picked up his Fender
Stratocaster guitar that his favorite father-n-law gave him as a
birthday present. Rick learned how to play really quick, mostly
teaching himself. Almost immediately he started to learn songs that
were played by the musicians he admired most.
The Red Dirt and Texas Country music scene has inspired him greatly.
Rick has kept his feet moving along the musician’s path which
contains numerous hurdles that try to make him fall to his knees
but, with motivation, loyalty to guitar, and music, he keeps on
succeeding with pride.

Samantha Rose is a high school senior who lives in Lawton,
OK. Determination is one of Samantha’s character traits, no
mater what she is doing. Growing up as the daughter of a
coach, it is not surprising that she approached athletics
with a characteristic passion. This included wrestling for
13 years, including years in the boy’s division, when there
was no girl’s division. Samantha played football in 4th and
5th grade, and no, she wasn’t the usual female kicker. She
played running back and safety. Breaking her arm making a
tackle is an indication of her determination in sports, and
in every thing she does. She concluded her sports career in
high school, when she switched to softball, and helped the
team win a state championship her sophomore year.
A secondary passion in those days was music. Samantha first
sang publicly in a 6th grade talent show, and later won a
middle school talent show. In spring 2009 she sent a video
of a vocal performance to an on line national teen idol
competition. She came in first on line, and was a finalist
in the competition in Long Branch, NJ.
got her first guitar for Christmas in 2009, and mostly
taught herself to play. The next month, she began to perform
publicly in Lawton, including playing some of a growing
number of songs that she has written.
In fall 2010, Samantha decided to add harmonica to a song.
She picked out a harmonica one afternoon, and performed with
it the next evening. Despite the surprise expressed by
musicians she has worked with, at such rapid progress, she
takes it in stride, and doesn’t think she is doing anything
Samantha enjoys writing and performing songs, and singing
in public. She has performed with bands, but usually plays
solo, accompanying herself on guitar.
She also loves to be outdoors, and has a passion for
fishing. She currently divides her time between music and
high school, where she is a senior class officer, and is
very active in school activities.
